In 1937, actual airplane pilot Dick Merrill become famous for being the first pilot to make a commercial transatlantic roundtrip flight.
Momogram Pictures, capitalizing on Merrill's celebrity status, quickly created the fictional film ATLANTIC FLIGHT where Merrill plays himself as a pilot crossing the Atlantic with a medical serum that can save his friend's life.
The film used real footage from Merrill's own stormy Atlantic crossing.
They had Doc Adams from "Gunsmoke"
so why did they need this special
serum? The man could fix broken
bones, gunshot wounds and parachute
in to install a supercharger. He was
a Titan before Chuck Norris.

entertaining, but the acting was weak
Seems every 8th movie back then involved a 'special serum" to save someone and someone else had to either fly, ride a horse or take a train to get it..How come they used all those serums up?
...and what the hell did they toss in a song and dance routine for? That's right...ALL millionaire broads back then had "talent"...choke, choke..between the sheets presumably.
